“Book This Now!!”
This was the most wonderful property for our week in San Juan! Four doors to a beautiful beach - neat and tidy apt with ample linens, utensils, etc - comfortable bed - good water pressure in the shower - cold a/c - consistent wifi service - thoughtful extras like beach chairs and drinking water - very safe location - quiet and friendly neighbors - walkably close to good restaurants for eating out and Walgreens for essentials - close to bus and trolley pick-up points - and the nicest, most helpful hosts we could have asked for! They provided a detailed map for nearby points of interest which was tremendously helpful to us as first-timers. Such a relaxing week with walks among the gated neighborhood streets, freedom to go back and forth to the beach in a quick few minutes and meeting people from all over the world also staying in the area. This is a fabulous location at a super price! We are already scheming how to return to this spot again!!
“El mejor alojamiento en Puerto Rico”
Nuestra primera vez en Puerto Rico, despues de varios dias en casa de nuestros amigos, decidimos buscar algo cerca de la playa. Este cómodo, limpio y lindo departamento está ubicado en la famosa playa de Ocean Park, en San Juan. El barrio es seguro y cerca de muchos restaurantes, supermercados, panaderias, etc. El departamento cuenta con toallas, sabanas, sillas de playa, etc. y todo lo necesario en caso que se quiera cocinar. Queremos agradecer a María de arenas Beach apartments por hacer de nuestra estadía una experiencia inolvidable, esperamos poder volver algún día.
“location, location, location!!!”
a nice, simple, satisfying accommodation. All the basics are supplied and the lovely outdoor area is wonderful to relax in! beach is steps from the door, great walkable markets and coffee/yoga/dinner/drinks/laundry closeby. central to PR hotspots and parks. Gorgeous beach, lovely private community, good parking. only two areas of improvement: futon is uncomfortable and toilet is temperamental. these factors are a small sacrifice compared to the overall value and quality of the apartment. I will definitely return and definitely recommend to others! a truly unforgettable stay. I mean, wow!
We stayed here for 10 days, and we felt very comfortable! the beautiful,clean beach was right few steps from the property and the flat was pretty clean and had all what we needed ! the only thing what was disturbing us every morning, was the noise from a construction building two doors away from our flat. but still We enjoyed being there ! Thank you Carina and Javier for all!
“A serene stay steps from Ocean Park beach”
I stayed in the ground floor studio next to this one. It looks like a mirror image of this one. The pictures are accurate. This is a clean apartment that is spacious for a studio. It's private and quiet with new looking furniture and appliances. But the best part is that Ocean Park beach- which is Gorgeous- is literally just a few steps from your front door. The water there is crystal clear and you'll be close enough to get a early morning or late night moment on the beach to yourself before/after the crowds. The apartment is not cleaned daily, which is a drawback if you're not so tidy. And I am told by Puerto Rican friends that even what I thought was very affordable (about $500 for the week) is what some might pay for a month is some apartments on the island. But one never knows the state of that elusive dirt cheap place you could have found. Still, the manager might consider leaving some sort of list of important essentials like the locations of the 24hr SuperMax supermarket that I discovered only on my last night. That would have been helpful to know about before. Nevertheless, the apartment was lovely. I will certainly return. It was worth every penny and is an extremely well managed place with everything working just as it should.
Response from the owner Thank you for your review. We have revised the detailed map we supplied you. It now says SuperMax Supermarket 24/7 instead of Super Max 24/7. Per our conversations we were unaware you were interested in daily cleaning. That could have easily been arranged for an additional fee. Regarding the $500 apartment your friends mentioned I'd like to clarify -for the benefit of people considering short term rentals in PR- these monthly rents are based on a yearly signed contract. A property at this price would not be as close to the beach, probably much less inside the controlled access area of Ocean Park. They would also be unfurnished, without appliances, linens, towels, plates, glasses and utensils. Most importantly it would be without cable, WiFi, water and electricity.
“Clean & Comfortable - Very Close to Best Beach”
Carina provided excellent, professional, & prompt service. She helped us avoid add'l fees on taxis & provided a handy walking-distance area map. She even called a local tour group to get us more info! The 1st floor studio is accessed through a semi-private outdoor patio (shared with 1 other unit). Secured from the street by a locked gate, it was perfect for drying clothes. The unit was tidy & cool. The bathroom had excellent water pressure & was well maintained. We met Javier during his Monday afternoon maintenance trip - so nice! Ocean Park's beach was truly better than any other in San Juan. With gentle waves & clear water it was the place to be for locals & relaxed vacationers. There were beach chairs in the closet & plenty of towels. We took advice from our taxi driver & left the beach when the locals did to avoid sand fleas & night time mischief. Some properties on the street were vacant, but our 2nd floor neighbors had their porches open signaling that safety was not a concern. In our 6 day stay we never had reason for alarm. This was a very dog friendly area - they ran free on the beaches. We loved this, but if you're afraid of dogs I'd keep this in mind. The walk to Condado along McLeary was really enjoyable - no taxi req'd. We enjoyed our night walks listening to the sound of coqui chirping in the trees. The 24/7 Walgreens behind Kasalta was so convenient. We also caught the T-5 bus to Old San Juan from Loiza for .75. The buses were always clean & air conditioned. We also booked a rainforest/ biobay tour through Puerto Rico Kayaking which picked us up right at the Santa ana gate to our neighborhood. We loved the hummus from Uvva in Hosteria del Mar w/ truffle oil & crispy chickpeas. Kasalta's coffee was refreshing, & Pamela's in Numero Uno Guest House had tall iced lattes. Tres Palmas had plenty of bathing suits, apparel, & accessories. All were nearby. Overall we'd stay again in a heartbeat.
“Pleasant stay !”
The unit advertised was rented but a similar one was available. Unit was basic but a quarter block from the beach, A Georgeous beach.Unit was clean. Had all the necessaries. Safe neighborhood but shows its age. Wonderful neighbors. Parking near the unit.A car would be a must.The best bakery/deli ever 2 blocks away.If you really want to see the real Puerto Rico and meet the people, this is the way. 10 MIN by car to Condado and Isla Verde and all the fancy restaurants and casinos.Close to old SaN Juan,the highway,the airport andeasy to get to the scenic and must sees of the country. Try the zip line!!!
I spent 2 beautiful weeks in this "4 Doors from Beach" lrg. studio. This place was exactly like in the pictures. It was a very nice and cozy studio. The apartment was very clean and we had everything that we needed. One time we asked for a beach chair and the left 2 chairs for us on the patio 30 min after I had text them. They also put out a new patio set. In front of the house there is a beautiful beach view from the street. The area is ok, but I felt extremely safe and everything you need is nearby. I would definitely recommend the studio, its is great for the money.
“Very relaxing close to beach and within walking distance of many”
Ocean Park was a nice area and the apartment had everything we needed. We enjoyed having the kitchen to make our meals and breakfasts. Local Restaurants were close by and within walking distance to also try some local cuisine. Maria responded to all emails very timely and provided a cell number,very easy check in process, directions, and a map of the area. Javier was available the day after we arrived and answered many questions. We did not have a car and found that we were able to walk, use the bus, or take a cab. We went to Old San Juan toured the forts, and took a 1/2 day tour of the El Yunque National Park-Rain Forest. The beach in Ocean Park was very nice and the water was warm. Plenty to do and see in the area a very nice vacation.
